Multipurpose credit cards
A frozen windshield can be trouble for you and other motorists. It’s especially bad in Alaska where you have to deal with this sort of problem every day during the winter season, which lasts between five and six months. If your windshield scraper broke from yesterday’s bout with a layer of thick ice, you could always use your credit card.
This might seem like a joke, but many locals actually rely on their plastic cards to improve their visibility while driving. There are also plastic card holders that serve the same purpose, but they’re no fun. The thought of snapping your credit card in two is half the reason why people use it.
